General information about data processing

Extent of personal data processing

We collect and use personal data from users of our homepage only to the extent that is necessary for keeping our website, our content and our services functioning properly.

In general, we collect and use our users’ personal data only after they give their consent. An exception to this principle applies in cases where processing data is permitted by statutory provisions or when obtaining prior con-sent is not possible.

Legal basis for processing personal data

The legal basis for processing personal data is generally based on:

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR upon obtaining the consent of the data subject.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR for processing operations that serve to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party. Included here are processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR for processing required to fulfil a legal obligation.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. d GDPR, if vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require processing of personal data.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, if processing is necessary for purposes of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest.

To be able to base the processing of personal data on a legitimate interest, an assessment is carried out in each case in consultation with the data protection officer for each relevant process, whereby the following three conditions must be met:

1) The controller or a third party has a legitimate interest in the processing of personal data.

2) The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest.

3) Interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data do not prevail.

Data erasure and data storage duration

Personal data of users will be deleted or restricted as soon as the purpose for storing the data is no longer applicable. Personal data may be stored for longer than for the original purpose, if there is applicable European or national legislation through EU regulations, laws, or other regulations, to which the data controller is subject to. Personal data is also deleted or restricted, when a mandatory storage period expires, unless the personal data is needed for concluding or fulfilling a contract.

Use of our website, general information

Description and scope of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the user’s computer system. The following information can be collected:

Information about the browser type and version used, the user’s operating system, the user’s Internet service provider, the user’s IP address, Date and time of access, Websites the user’s system accesses to get to our website, Websites that the user’s system invokes by accessing our website.

The described data is stored in log files for our system and is not stored together with any other personal user data.

Purpose and legal basis for data processing

To provide our website to users, our system must store user IP addresses temporarily. Therefore, IP addresses must be stored for the duration of a users’ session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website. In addition, the data is used to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our systems. Personal data that is processed in this context, is not processed for marketing purposes. 

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Collecting this personal data and storing it in log files is essential to secure, provide and operate our website. Therefore, an option to object to processing in this context does not exist.

Duration of storage

Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose it was processed for. Personal data that is processed to provide our website will be deleted after your session ends.

If your data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. It may be stored for longer, whereby the IP addresses of users are deleted or alienated. This means, that it will no longer be possible, to assign them to individual clients.

General information about the use of cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored in your Internet browser and therefore on your computer system. If you display any website, a cookie can be stored on your operating system. Cookies can contain characteristic strings that allow unique identification of browsers.

We use cookies to make our homepage more user friendly. Some elements of our website require that your browser can be identified even after leaving our website.


The legal basis for the storage of cookies, device identifiers and similar tracking technologies or for the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment and access to this information is the European ePrivacy Directive in conjunction with the Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDPA; Ger.: TTDSG).

Please note that the legal basis for the processing of personal data collected in this context then results from the GDPR. The relevant legal basis for the processing of personal data in each specific case can be found below the respective cookie or the respective processing itself.

The primary legal basis for the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment – consequently in particular for the storage of cookies – is their consent, §25 Abs.1 S.1 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG). Consent is given when visiting our website – although this does not have to be given, of course – and can be revoked at any time in the cookie settings.

According to §25 Abs.2 Nr.2 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG), consent is not required if the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment or access to in-formation already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is absolutely necessary for the provider of a Telemedia service to be able to provide a Telemedia service expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as “technically necessary cookies”) and therefore fall under the exception of §25 Para.2 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG) and therefore do not require consent.


When cookies are used, the following data is stored and transmitted:

Shopping cart, Log-in, Chat History, Subscription User Log-in Data

The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is defined in Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. The purpose for using technically required cookies is to simplify the use of our website.

We would like to point out that some functions on our website can only be offered if cookies are enabled.

This applies to the following applications:

Shopping cart, Log-in, Chat History, Subscription User Log-in Data

We do not use personal data collected with technically necessary cookies to create user profiles.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits them to our page. As a user, you therefore have control over the use of cookies. You can restrict or disable transmission of cookies by making changes to your Internet browser settings. There you can also delete cookies that have been stored. Please note that you may not be able to use all the features on our website if you deactivate cookies.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis and advertising purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.

Cookie consent with Cookiebot

Our website uses cookie consent technology from Cookiebot to obtain your consent to store certain cookies in your browser and to document it in a privacy-compliant manner. The provider of this technology is the company Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (hereinafter Cybot). 

When you enter our website, a Cybot cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given, or the revocation of these consents are stored. If consent has been granted, the Cybot cookie data will also be logged with Cybot:

The IP number of the end user in anonymized form (the last three digits are

set to ‘0’), Date and time of consent, User agent of the end user’s browser, The URL from which the consent was sent, an anonymous, random and encrypted key, the consent status, which serves as proof of consent.

The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or delete the Cybot cookie yourself, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected. Details on the data processing of Cookiebot can be found at 

The use of the Cookiebot cookie consent technology takes place in order to obtain the legally required consents for the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR.

Your rights/rights of the data subject

According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, as data subject you have the following rights:

Right of access by the data subject

You have the right to receive from us as data controller the information whether and which personal data concerning you are processed by us as well as further information in accordance with the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 13, 14 GDPR.

You can claim your right to information under: 

The right to rectification

If we process your personal data incorrectly or in an incomplete manner, then you have a right for it to be corrected/completed. The correction will be made immediately.

Right to restriction

You have the right to restrict the processing of personal data concerning you in accordance with the legal provisions (Art. 18 GDPR).

The right to delete

If the conditions set out in Article 17 of the GDPR apply, you may request that the personal data relating to you be deleted without delay. 

We would like to point out that the right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary for one of the exceptional circumstances mentioned in Art. 17 para. 3.

Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectify, delete or restrict the processing, we are obligated to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionate amount of effort. You also have the right to be informed about these recipients.

Right to data portability

According to the GDPR, you also have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that has been provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request its transfer to another controller.

Right to revoke the declaration of consent to data protection

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration at any time. Please note that revoking consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation goes into effect.

Right to objection

Furthermore, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. e or f GDPR.

Automated decision on an individual basis, including profiling

Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation, you remain entitled not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which would have legal effect or would affect you in a similar manner. 

Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Finally, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in the Member State of its place of residence, employment or the location of the alleged infringement.

Data transfers to third countries (outside of the EU)

The GDPR ensures an equally high level of data protection within the European Union. When selecting our service providers, we therefore rely on European partners wherever possible when your personal data is being processed. Within some exceptions we may process personal data outside the EU through third-party services. This may only be the case where the special requirements in accordance with Art. 44 et. seq. GDPR are fully met. This means that the processing of your data may then only take place when the third country has been declared to ensure an adequate level of protection by the European Commission or if the European Standard Contractual Clauses have been signed.

Data processing under the Swiss DPA

In principle, the use of our website is subject to the legal regulations of the GDPR. Insofar as you also visit our website from Switzerland and insofar as the related data processing also affects you as a Swiss citizen, these data protection provisions also apply to you under the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (“Swiss DPA” as amended on 01 September 2023), analogously to the GDPR.

In principle, the Swiss DPA does not provide for the naming of a legal basis. In this respect, we only process your data from Switzerland if the processing is lawful, is carried out in good faith and is proportionate in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 and 2 of the Swiss DPA. Furthermore, your data will only be collected by us for a specific purpose that is recognizable to the data subject and will only be processed in such a way that it is compatible with these purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 3 of the Swiss Data Protection Act.

In this context, please also note that although certain terms are formulated differently under the GDPR, they have the same legal meaning as under the Swiss DPA. For example, the GDPR terms “processing” of “personal data” as well as “legitimate interest” and “special categories of data” used in this Privacy Notice correspond to the terms “processing” of “personal data”, “overriding interest” and “personal data requiring special protection” used in the Swiss DPA.

The data subject rights set out here pursuant to Art. 12 et seq. GDPR can be asserted by data subjects from Switzerland in analogy to the regulations pursuant to Art. 25 et seq. of the Swiss DPA.

These users’ data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles that are created based on the user’s behavior and interests. These profiles can be used to place advertisements that allegedly is within the users’ interests. For these purposes, technologies such as cookies are used to observe the user’s behavior and to evaluate each user’s interests.

However, the primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of insights data lies with the social media platform and it fulfills all obligations under the GDPR regarding the processing of insights data. In this context, the social media platform provides the essence of the page insights supplement to the data subjects.

We, as the operator of the fan page, do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and all other information resulting from Art. 13 of the GDPR, such as the legal basis, the identity of the responsible party and the storage period of cookies on the user end devices.

Further notes on processing, procedures and services


We use the service Gravatar within our online offer. Gravatar is a service where users can register and leave profile pictures and their email addresses. 

If users leave posts or comments on other online presences (especially blogs) with the respective e-mail address, their profile pictures can be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the email address provided by the users is transmitted to Gravatar in encrypted form for the purpose of checking whether a profile is stored for it. This is the sole purpose of the transmission of the email address. It is not used for other purposes, but is deleted afterwards.

Gravatar is used on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, as we use Gravatar to offer post and comment authors the opportunity to personalise their posts with a profile picture. By displaying the images, Gravatar obtains the IP address of the users, as this is necessary for a communication between a browser and an online service.

If users do not want a user image linked to their Gravatar email address to appear in the comments, they should use an email address that is not on file with Gravatar to comment. We also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous email address or no email address at all if users do not want their email address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can prevent the transmission of data completely by not using our commenting system.
